Canton, Ohio (KWWL) -

Only two weeks in to his first NFL season, David Johnson will have a presence in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Johnson's jersey and shoes from the win over the Chicago Bears are headed to Canton.

The former UNI Panther became the first rookie in league history to tally a rushing, receiving and kick-off return touchdown just two games into an NFL career.

The rookie running back set an Arizona Cardinals record returning the opening kick of Sunday's game 108 yards for a score. The play was the longest in franchise history. He capped his day with a 15 yard touchdown run in the 4th quarter. Johnson also scored on a 55 yard reception the previous week against New Orleans.
